Welsh independent publisher Graffeg has been shortlisted for The FutureBook Campaign of the Year 2018 for their digital marketing campaign for the picture book Gaspard the Fox by BBC broadcaster, Zeb Soanes and award-winning illustrator James Mayhew.
Pembrokeshire – 1994. Mostyn Thomas is an ageing farmer, down on his luck, on the brink of bankruptcy. When he runs into Jethro, a young raver, his fortunes appear to take a positive turn. The pair hatch a plan to solve Mostyn’s money problems by holding a rave on Mostyn’s secluded land. Secretly mobilizing the locals of the village pub they plan the greatest money-spinning event in the history of Little Emlyn: Lewistock.
Graffeg are to publish the rhyming picture book Only One of Me, written by best-selling author Michelle Robinson with her friend and mum-of-two Lisa Wells (32), who has been diagnosed with terminal bowel and liver cancer and told she has only months to live.
